Visited with a business group and enjoyed a variety of appetizers that were all very good. I didn’t order them, but one was fish and the other was tomato based. Both were delicious and reflected careful presentation and ingredient selection.

For dinner I had the Halibut. It was very tasty, and the eggplant on the plate was perfectly prepared and seasoned and devoid of the bitterness that can arise from poor preparation.

For dessert I had the ice cream sandwich. It was an interesting take on the classic and quite good.

Service was fast, attentive and unobtrusive, which is perfect for a business dinner. Several special requests were accommodated with precision and positive attitude.

Overall this restaurant aspires to high standards and achieves them without resorting to pretension or snootiness.

We went there for a dinner and had an amazing time. Service was superb. Our waiter made sure we had everything we needed at all times. Very romantic atmosphere. They had impressive wine list. I would definitely recommend trying their scallops. So tasty. Overall, great restaurant for the special occasions.

had a very satisfying experience up to dessert.
menu is interesting and our choices did not disappoint, with flavors and style that show work and creativity. that is well worth the visit.
wine list is extensive with a price range enabling all budgets. service was good and attentive, if not completely consistent on some details (first course explained in details, main just dropped on the table).
excellent bread.
atmosphere a bit dark (when you get old, difficult to read the menu) and on the noisy side. but nothing really a problem and we had mostly a good dinner.

yet... we ordered a dessert.
well, i took cheese (in general i am not really a dessert guy) which comes nicely presented and 2 out of 3 quite good. but my... 21$ for the serving, this is really margin enhancement.
then chocolate cream pie... although technically all they describe is accurately there it is a tad disappointing that this ends up being the whole thing, without any finesse or art, and wife ended up with a common slice of a vaguely chocolaty pudding and cream cake... quite unfortunate and i will surely skip that part of the meal next round.

We were there for 3 hours and they were very attentive the whole time. I ordered a vegetarian dish expecting the usual boring food but was very impressed with the stuffed squash blossom and zucchini with a delicious crust. I would definitely go back for a special dinner, as it is a bit expensive but worth it.
